June Knit a Long "French Cancan" by Mademoiselle C.

Come join the FUN!
We have chosen the French Cancan by Mademoiselle C. found on Ravelry.

We are suggesting either using two skeins of Zen Garden Serenity DK which has 250 yards (100grams) and is 90% Merino with 10% Cashmere or five skeins of Sublime Lustrous Extrafine Merino DK which has 104 yards and 67% Merino and 33% Nylon.  We think the luster of this Sublime yarn will look fabulous with the cable and lace detail.

For those of you joining the knit a long Mademoiselle C. has kindly offered Chelsea Yarns participants a 20% off coupon code when purchasing the pattern. Upon purchase of yarn for the KAL we will send you the coupon code for this project. This discount code expires June 15, 2013 which coincides with the beginning of our KAL. Remember in store shoppers will receive 20% off the yarn for this project as well as online.

Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Our first road trip for Chelsea Yarns! We left Colts Neck and headed out on the road to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!  We couldn't have asked for a more PERFECT day! The weather was beautiful and sunny. The smells of BBQ and kettle corn spread throughout the fair.  The barns were full of sheep and alpaca getting their new Spring haircuts!  We were dazzled and surrounded by so many talented vendors selling yarn and fiber related "bling".  Many thanks to those who joined us on this "yarn venture" as you helped make this day very special.  We hope you had as much fun as we did and know you're enjoying all your newly bought "toys" today.

Annie and her new friend!

Some fun hand spun yarn that made me smile!
